Welcome to paradise. Originally settled in the 4th century, the island is a verdant jewel in an beautiful sea. Lush tropical rainforests and its location at the edge of an azure lagoon make Bora Bora one of the most beautiful, romantic places in the world. Le Méridien Bora Bora’s 98 tropically themed bungalows are either perched over the spectacular lagoon or nestled at the edge of ivory sands shadowed by tall coconut trees. Over-water bungalows feature a glass-bottomed floor, providing stunning views of the marine life below. Beach bungalows offer private beaches and hammocks. Le Tipanie restaurant features a different themed cuisine each night of the week. The Kaïnalu Club offers traditional Polynesian outrigger canoes, jet skiing, sailing, shark feeding and scuba diving. The Turtle Sanctuary at Le Méridien Bora Bora, an effort to help save the magnificent hawksbill turtle, is the only one of its kind in French Polynesia. The hotel offers educational presentations to teach guests about these beautiful creatures, and guests can swim with the turtles in the picturesque lagoon or even “adopt” a turtle and help in the quest to return these animals to their natural wild habitat.
This Hotel pretty much has everything you could want in a hotel. Great rooms, great views and really good food. It's not inexpensive but is not through the roof, pricey but worth every penny, especially for the views. I was there when a storm came through and the lightning in the sky was spectacular. They have great room service if you feel like staying in and kicking back while they deliver a great lunch or dinner. To visit Bora Bora is only a five minute boat ride with 2 rental car services there when you arrive making transportation around the island very easy. I do recommend Bloody Marys restaurant and bar on the island and you'd be surprised at all the celebrities who've eaten there. Back at the Hotel they try they're best to cater to whatever you may want to do or may need. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Bora Bora, this is the place to stay without question!
